BPCC's Peavy heads to NSU

Northwestern State head baseball coach Lane Burroughs and is coaching staff announced that right-handed pitcher Reid Peavy of Bossier Parish Community College is the latest signee added to join the Demons in 2014.

Peavy (6-0, 180) led the Cavaliers to their first regional appearance and win in school history.

"Reid is a strike thrower with three above-average pitches," said Burroughs. "He pitched in probably the toughest region in junior college baseball in the country.  He comes from a great program and will add depth with the ability to make an immediate impact." 

The Texarkana, Ark. native, was a two-time all-conference and all-state pitcher at Arkansas High School.  He was a participant in the 2010 All-Star Game and was named the 2010 6A Pitcher of the Year.

"He's a quality arm, but more importantly he's a quality and very mature young man," said Burroughs. 

He was a state champion his freshman season, and was coached by Mike Lloyd.  He was a two-year letterman in baseball and lettered one year in bowling.

He is the son of Laura and Joey Peavy with one brother, Dane.  He will major in criminal justice with aspirations of becoming a police office or baseball coach after graduation from NSU.
